Insanely cool guy builds real-life WALL-E to cheer up kids with cancer8/3/2012
It's awesome enough that Mike Senna spent more than two years building a working WALL-E robot from scratch, but the fact that he did it to bring joy to pediatric cancer patients? Well, awesome doesn't begin to describe it. The California computer programmer started by drawing his own blueprints, based on repeated viewings of his "WALL-E" DVD. The project took 3,800 hours to complete, from developing the electronics and mechanical system to getting the paint job just right, down to the "Buy n Large" logo on his back. WALL-E's first outing? Waving at the kids at the City of Hope Pediatric Picnic. "For them to see the character … is priceless for me," Senna said. [Source]
